Gallery: Six Delicious Recipes for Your Thanksgiving Leftovers

Now that Thanksgiving has come and gone, it's time to find something to do with all of those leftovers! Although the holiday is one of our favorites, it often ends in people throwing out a huge amount of food that contributes to the 34 million tons of American food waste each year. This holiday, keep your turkey and side dishes around for a couple more days - instead of just re-heating, try out these delicious recipes that reinvent your family feast down to the last cranberry. You'll not only help the environment, but you will also save a pretty penny to spend later on holiday gifts.

What better way to spend the morning after Thanksgiving than with more of your favorite ingredients? This hash made from brussel sprouts, potatoes, and turkey turns last night’s yummy ingredients into this morning’s breakfast. All you need is vegetable oil, an onion, hot sauce, eggs, and your leftovers. Throw them in a skillet and you’re good to go! Check out the full recipe on  SeriousEats.


Stuffing Pancakes

Who says pancakes always have to be sweet? This awesome recipe from Chowballa makes breakfast savory with stuffing pancakes topped with eggs and bacon. Just add a beaten egg to 1 1/2 to 2 cups of stuffing, form a couple pancakes and let them sit for a few minutes to absorb the moisture. Melt butter in a pan and let the pancakes cook until golden brown on each side.

These delicious and easy to make doughnuts can be cooked in a dutch oven or a large cast iron skillet, and they’re sure to be a family favorite. The detailed recipe is available at SeriousEats.
